      Land Plant in the Pond?

      I have comes across some place that have a display of garden ponds that display Land Plants (or I thought it was) because we have it planted in a pot at home.

      So, my DW starts having ideas of putting this plant in her Lily Pond. I told her that's not a problems at all, but not before I take out all the Koi from the Lily Pond first. (I didn't literally said that to her, just in my head) After we were done with the NEW Pond and moved the Koi, I told her now you can arrange the other Pond the way you like.

      Is it possible to put Land Plants in the pond? And not killing it in the process.
      Regards,

      Depends on what you mean by Land Plant. Take Lobelia Cardinalis. Folks grow it in their dry land gardens. But it also makes an excellent pond plant. There are many garden plants which also do well in ponds. On the other hand, most garden plants would likely object to having wet feet.

      Taro is another plant that could grow on land or pond.

      Horsetail ( Equisetum sp ) does indeed do well in moist soil, but I would not put in the "pond" proper. Also, it can be a beast! If you decide to go with it, I definitely recommend potting it. It spreads quickly from runners and once established can be difficult to control. There are even published articles documenting its ability to puncture liners.

      I know it can be a beast, that is why my DW wants to put that horsetail in the pot (something about the roots being 4" above or below the water). Hopefully she'll put that in her Lily Pond not my Koi Pond, because my pond is a lot deeper and will take some doing to get the horsetail high enough. And we have already agreed not to put too many plants in the Koi Pond, but you know how it usually ended up, right? Plants everywhere and the pond is crowned probably at the end. But as they say, whatever makes DW happy, it's a good life!

      If you put horsetail in the pond definitely pot it, and repot it yearly so that it does not get too big.
      Many “bog” plants can be grown in a slightly damp are as well as a pond. Irises, taro, Thalia, etc.

      Definitely will keep that in mind, if we put the horsetail in. We already got the Irises seed getting ready to be potted in the Lily Pond. We got one of the Lily pot (repotted) in the Koi pond already. Looking very nice too. The Koi seems to be a little bit more calmer with the Lily being in there.

      If you look up "marginals" among the aquatic nurseries, you will often find plants that do well in the pond or on the land.

      Thanks danzcool. I appreciate the info you provided. I have learned a lot in the past week about all these plants that I have not known before. Since I have been trying to help my DW out and making sure that my pond and the Koi will survived and strive well.

      Comes to find out that my DW knows about the healing power of the horsetail. But what she didn't know was it helps with weight loss.
